TEMPE, AZ (January 24, 2008) – Professional athletes Donovan McNabb, Dontrelle Willis, and Marshawn Lynch – all bloggers on Yardbarker.com – are among those scheduled to appear at the RazorGator Fan Junket presented by Hooters, January 29, 2008.
The event will mirror in real life what Yardbarker.com does in the virtual world – bring sports fans and famous athletes together. Pre-selected contest winners will play video games and chat one-on-one with the athletes in an exclusive “locker room” area, giving them a rare chance for personal interaction with the superstars. All other fans are invited to Hooters of Tempe for the live broadcast of KTAR’s Gambo and Ash show. Various contests and giveaways will take place throughout the afternoon.
The Gambo and Ash Show of Sports 620 KTAR will broadcast live from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Athletes are scheduled to begin arriving at 2 p.m. Hooters of Downtown Tempe is located at 501 S. Mill Ave. #201 in Tempe, AZ.
Pete Vlastelica, CEO for Yardbarker states, “We're thrilled to be working with our partners to bring the Yardbarker experience, which up until now has been strictly online, to real life. Unlike the traditionally impersonal celebrity "meet-and-greet," fans and athletes at the Fan Junket will have the opportunity to establish a real connection through one-on-one interaction.”
“These days, fans want more than just the game. The RazorGator Junket gives fans the ability to interact with sports icons up close and personal, in addition to blogging. It is the next generation in sports entertainment. It is great to be part of bringing this kind of interaction to fans during the Super Bowl,” says Toni Lamb, Director of PR for RazorGator.
